29 Jul 2013
The Emmy-winning series "Downton Abbey" will be released in a special collector's edition box set Oct. 1.
The limited edition set includes Seasons 1-3 in collectable packaging and features more than three hours of previously released bonus video, including "Downton Abbey: The Making of" and "Downton Abbey: Behind the Drama."
Created by Academy Award winner Julian Fellowes ("Gosford Park"), the series follows the Crawley family through the social and economic upheaval before, during and following World War I.
Holed up in a seedy motel on the edge of the Mojave Desert, two former lovers unpack the deep secrets and dark desires of their tangled relationship, passionately tearing each other apart. Led by director Daniel Aukin (Back Back Back at MTC, 4,000 Miles), Tony winner Nina Arianda (Venus in Fur at MTC, Born Yesterday) and Sam Rockwell (A Behanding in Spokane, The Way Way Back) bring an explosive intensity to Sam Shepard’s (Buried Child, True West) landmark myth of the new Wild West.
